Books that do not need recommending

So sometimes I read books, and I love them, and then I think to myself that it hardly matters if I mention them on the blog because everyone will have read them anyway, as they are much spoken of and in short, Much Beloved by the Populace.

But this hardly seems fair. If I loved a book, I really should mention it. So if you needed an extra nudge towards any of these books, I recommend them heartily!

Nation by Terry Pratchett
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

I recommend them in a bit more detail here!

Have you guys found yourself hesitant to talk about really popular stuff you love, just because it is popular and everyone does it? I remember holding off on reading Harry Potter for just that reason years ago. (Also, I didn't watch Gossip Girl for ages. Horrible mistake!)
